PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) -

One Phenix City teacher is immersing her students into cultures from around the world. 

Jacinta Thomas, who teaches Pre-K at Ridgecrest Elementary School, had her kids participate in this project for the second year in a row. 

Each student and their parents were asked to research a country and present what they found to the entire class. 

Thomas says this is the perfect way for her students to expand on culture at an early age and celebrate other cultures since not all celebrate Christmas.

“We have students that speak another language so they are getting to hear about other languages in the school,” Thomas said. “We are learning they are not the only people in the world, there are other people out there. So I think they are really enjoying it.”

Each student also presented a dish they prepared from the country they researched. They also dressed in clothes related to each country.
